Condon's paintings translate landscape two dimensionally, compressing or stacking space into sliver-thin layers. Improvisational paint applications--brushing, pouring, smearing, literally digging beneath the surface of paint--re-envision textiles and wallpaper as synthetic landscape.
Elisabeth Condon is known for paintings and works on paper that overlap natural and built environments with references to scrolls, décor, and calligraphy. Linking scroll painting with the decorative wallpapers of her childhood home, Condon incorporates lattice or bird and flower motifs in her paintings and public art works such as Urban Idyll, commissioned by MTA Art & Design Percent for Art for the NYCT Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. Station in Queens. Condon's paintings are held in the collections of Tampa Museum of Art, Perez Art Museum Miami, United States Embassy Beijing, and numerous private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. She is recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and a Florida Individual Artist Fellowship. Condon's fellowships include residencies at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel Shanghai, UCross Foundation, Yaddo, MacDowell, Wave Hill, Montello Foundation, and Carrizozo.
